2017 Rebel with a Cause

36% Teroldego, 21% Lagrein, 43% Blaufrankisch
Slightly restrained and brooding at initial opening, this wine quickly opens up and becomes much more expressive in the glass. Resinous tones of wet moss and gravel. Brown spices in the nose, bolstered by ripe plums, figs and black fruit. Flavors of blackberry and currant preserves, with more subtle components of dried fruit and hay. Fleshy texture mid-palate, followed by slightly drying fine tannins and modest acidity that lengthen and expand the finish.
*Fruit sourced from Red Tail Ridge Vineyard

About the Winery

Red Tail Ridge Winery

Community. Sustainability. Creativity.

James Beard Semi-Finalist in 2019 & 2020

We make small batches of handmade wine; we are minimal interventionists, preferring to do all the work upfront in the vineyard, during the growing season.

With a climate similar to the cool climate regions in Europe, the Fingers Lakes is the perfect place to experiment. We have embraced our terroir and are focusing our efforts on wines that speak to our specific climate and soils. It was important to Michael and I to set us up for the long-term, which is why we became a LEED-gold certified green winery—currently the only one in New York State.

This community and environment is everything I could have hoped for when considering where to experiment, grow and give back.
